Mieke and William

A Wedding Feast Set In An Olive Grove. Goede Hoop Farm, Paarl.

Yesterday we published this sweet couple’s surprise engagement pictures in the olive grove on Williams                family farm in Paarl. Today we take great pleasure in sharing their wedding pictures. (…and plenty of them.) We doubt our words can even begin to do Mieke and William’s wedding justice. There was just too much. Too much goodness, too much beauty and too much joy. But let’s give it a go :)

While photographing Mieke and William’s engagement they told us about their plans to set up a long table in the lane that led up hill and amongst the olive trees and feast with everyone they love out under the stars.  Of course, we thought it would be beautiful. What we mean is, we knew it would be spectacular and we couldn’t quite contain ourselves. We had six months of waiting ahead of us though.

When we came back to the farm in the summer to cover the wedding we discovered that they had created a wonderland. Beautiful lighting strung between the trees all the way up the lane. Simple and natural table decor. A dance floor in the barley field and a German Umpah band to get everyone into the festive mood.

In the end it really was a feast. One of love and friendship, great joy and celebration. And it is one we will remember for many years indeed.
We loved it.

Mieke and William, your wedding was wonderful – thank you for inviting us to document it!
